    Can anyone help me with this phrase?

    todos le mentirían por miedo a ser despedidos y tal vez echaría a un empleado, pero el error seguiría allí.

    Haven't got a clue what does "echar a" mean in this context...

    Hi amp:

    In this case echar means "to fire".

    Everyone would lie to him/her out of fear of being fired, but the error would still be there.

    Echar a un empleado significa despedirlo de la empresa.
